He treats adult and paediatric patients with general ENT conditions, and also has a special interest in head and neck surgery, including salivary gland disease (parotid and submandibular gland surgery), voice & swallowing disorders, endocrine neck surgery, and robotic surgery. Mr Ofo is an experienced thyroid/parathyroid surgeon, performing over 100 thyroid and parathyroid operations per year.

His research has been presented at national and international medical conferences, and resulted in several journal publications.

Mr Ofo received advanced head and neck surgery training during two prestigious fellowships at: Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital London, and the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Australia. Whilst in Australia, Mr Ofo was one of the first head and neck surgeons from the United Kingdom to obtain 12 months of dedicated robotic surgery fellowship experience, following which he led the surgical team at St George’s Hospital London to perform their first robotic head and neck cancer operation in April 2015.
